Hey everyone, I don't know much about tires. Actually to be frank, my knowledge on tires is very rudimentary, but of course I do know how to read.

With that said and from what I've gathered, majority of people amongst us and pretty much everywhere else recommend PS2's as phenomenal daily-driving performance tires. What no one mentions however is whether they run the RFT's or non-RFT's. Pro's and Cons of either or? Do e92 (like mine) 'require' RFT's or can you run regular PS2's with some.. I'm guessing alterations to make them fit?

Thank you for your time!

P.s: for what it's worth, my rims are stock 18" M-Sport. Also, does anyone know of a place that offers the best pricing for tires?

Personal opinion is the Michelin PSS are just as capable if not superior to the PS2, considerably cheaper, and last much longer. Best tire I've ever had on my 335.

I have ditched the run flats and carry the repair kit / compressor in my trunk along with roadside assist. Some prefer a full size spare. There are no "alterations" required for non RFTs.


If you do stay with run flats, most will tell you the PS2 is way better than the OEM bridgestones.

The Pilot Super Sport is definitely an improvement over the PS2 which was first introduced almost ten years ago. The only reason for purchasing a set of the PS2 tires over the Super Sport is if you would like run flat tires.
